After using IODORAL (a iodine supplement) for the past 6 months, I have not had any endo pain and my sex life has been restored! After years of misdiagnosis and indifference by many doctors, I found a specialist for endo who diagnosed me and performed my only laparoscopy. I was finally pregnant within a year. Like many others, my endo related pain subsided during pregnancy only to return quickly after the baby came. Out of desperation, I sought out a holistic/naturopath doctor for help. He tested my iodine levels right away. It only required a simple saliva and urine test. Turns out my iodine levels were lESS than 1 parts per million. I think reqular levels for a woman my age were suppose to be around 10 or 12. He immediatly put me on a high dosage of iodoral supplements. After retesting my iodine periodically, my iodine level went up and my pain vanished! I now only take 1-2 supplements a day to maintain and have been painfree these past 6 months.(I had the other usual hormone related troubles with endo and they have subsided as well.) I was skeptical but desperate enough to try this. I hope someone else can benefit from this information. It's such a simple thing to try and non-intrusive. No side effects. Find a naturopath doctor, make sure they can test your iodine levels via the saliva and urine. If they can't do that, than keep looking. It's important to find someone who knows what they are doing. Research the net about iodine deficiency. It is worth your time! I am now almost 34 and have suffered from endo symptoms since my early 20's. I was not diagnosed until 2-3 years ago. I know how disruptive endo can be to your life. You MUST check into iodine supplementation. It has been my miracle! Good luck. I hope someone else can find their way back to a normal life like I have.

Hi Anita,

I am very interested in your experience. I wonder how much do you take of Iodoral? I tried 25 mg, I had all possible side effects. Thank you

Hi Aiste,

have you found this site yet?
If not, go there for more iodine info.

and how to deal with the detox.

I would write more if I knew you would get this

but the detox is a sign you need the Iodine, you just have to figure out how to ride it out
I too have had/am having lots of detox symptoms
it is sooooooo worth going through

I am cougar on that forum,
feel free to email me directly on that forum if you would like

Thank you very much for responding. My endometriosis is better and worst in some periods.
I used Iodoral for a very short time and that really nearly ruined me. I would like to try again, but it is so difficult here in Denmark to find a good naturopath. I believe that I am basically on my own with al these experiments.
Just to say shortly, what I sense and some test have shown that my pituitary gland is overworking, my pancreas as well giving too much insulin. Which naturally makes me question that over glands might also be hyperactive. Unfortunately no one does any test for me. Doctors when I approach them they think I am not in my mind.

Well my experience with Iodoral is that I think I took too much. And that was dangerous for me I would not sign it too much on a side effects, I sincere think that too high doses can be dangerous at least for me it was. The way I felt it was seriously not a side effect. Did I mention that I was a nurse once that helps me to understand a bit the process in my body. What I try to do at the moment is to use Iodine to pain my self. Kind of baby steps. I thing I will start taking one drop per day with water. I am using Nascent Iodine for painting. I think I tolerate it better when Iodoral.

Just to mention I also been working with liver cleaning (have done probably 8 by now). Which made a big difference for me. Traditional medicine definatly big no no for me couldn’t tolerate at all. I feel I am kind of a person that what goes for others for me is kind of questionable, all what happens is kind of not according to the “book” if you know what I mean. Which makes communication with doctors even more difficult.

If you jumped into a high dose if Iodoral at the start that could be the big problem. Your body should have a chance to adjust and you need enough antioxidants in your system. Top of the list is, unless you get a lot in your diet, selenium. Your thyroid needs selenium to manage the H2O2 generated in making thyroid hormone. You should start taking 200 micrograms (mcg) of selenium per day a week or two before starting Iodoral and I would suggest taking it in a form attached to an amino acid such a L-selenomethionine. If you don’t eat much sea food and/or live in a area where the soil is low in iodine and selenium you might even do 400mcg of selenium for the first week or so.

The other issue is support from other antioxidants and vitamins to support your body so you lower the risk of adrenal exhaustion. All doctors that use Iodoral seem to also use such a vitamin protocol in parallel for that reason. B2, B12, B3, B12, Folic Acid, and Vit C all seem to be considered important, especially C, B2, B12, and B3. Then there is the issue of getting the correct dose of Iodoral. All of this is why it helps so much to work with a doctor that has experience doing this. But if you do it on your own, those are the important other factors.

If you google the words,“thyroid iodine selenium”, "thyroid iodine selenium NIH” and “the iodine project” you should find a lot of information on this that should be reviewed before trying it on your own.

When you start on iodine supplements, you must start small, less than 1mg lugols and work your way up slowly to 12mg daily over a period of 2 or 3 months. The reason is that every drop of iodine you take in detoxes 1 drop or more of halide chemical toxins. If you take too much iodine too soon, you well get sick from Detox Symptoms. Full instructions & details in this file:

Please help me pass this file around to everyone you know, email, facebook, twitter. Millions of women are suffering from PCOS, Endometriosis, Cysts, Fibrocystic Breasts, and related cancers because of a stupid iodine deficiency. There is a nationwide epidemic of iodine deficiency because the above chemicals are displacing what little iodine we have.

Hello Anita,

I do not know as to whether you will read this post, since we have June 2012 now.
However, how are you doing today in 2012 with the endometriosis? I am an MD in Germany and I have started one female patient with 1/2 tabl. iodoral, going up to 1 tabl from today on. She had lots of conventional treatments (contraceptive hormones, operation) before.
My question is: How long after starting was it, that the typical endometriosis-pain eventually got better? You wrote that youe judged the treatment after 6 months.
best, Markus

I am so excited cause i have struggled with PCOS and lack of cycle since I was in my early 20's. I am now 36 so I have been looking for something to naturally bring on a cycle. I literally will go years without a period. Not just 1 or 2 but YEARS! The Gyno has only prescribed me Clomid or Progestrone pills. I do not like to take meds if I can help it. I felt it was only masking the problem and not solving. After some research I figured I would try Iodoral since I had all the symptoms of iodine dificiency. I have only been taking the Iodoral suppliments for 2-3 weeks and have just started a cycle ON MY OWN! With the help of Iodoral of course. I totally give Iodoral the credit since I have not had a cycle for 5 months since I last took Progestrone. Very happy with Iodoral! Now I am hoping that maybe I will get pregnant!

I've suffered a constellation of GI symptoms over the last three years. The 'brain fog' became so severe that I began to worry that I might have a seizure. I've spent countless hours researching and talking to friends and family without improvement. I knew that my ailments were rooted in a hormonal imbalance but couldn't identify the component. I was looking for a potassium supplement to my arsenal of trial supplements when a well informed assistant at our local natural food shop listened to my story of symptoms and suggested iodine drops. It's only been two days and I feel improvement. I'm so hopeful and appreaciative of these sites that share perspectives and insight. Thank you for sharing because your stories have made a difference!

Find this book
Iodine "Why you need it, Why you can't live with out it" by Dr. Brownstein AND
"Salt your way to health" by Dr. Brownstein they will help unbelievably with detox and information. I thought I was going to die before I found their information. I am lucky enough to live close to their practice but it took me two years to get in and I had to call every one I knew to ask favors and see if someone could possibly try and get one of the doctors to see me, that is how hard it is to get into them :) Now that I am a patient (Dr. NG is my Doctor) I see why no one leaves them
Anyway the book isn't well written but it is a God send!!
My doctor made me use Celtic sea salt, vitamin C, magnesium, Vitamin D for a month before he allowed me to use the Iodoral so the detox wouldn't be so bad .... After using the Iodoral for just a few weeks I was a new person!
Good luck to all!!

The Iodoral is less expensive and so much better!
Read the book and you will see "Iodine Why We Need It, Why We Can't Live Without It"
and "Salt Your Way To Health" both by Dr. Brownstein you will be utterly and completely happy you did

Hi, I'm obviously not Anita but I can tell you that when I started supplementing with iodine (Iodoral or Lugol's - went up to 75mg but backed down due to adrenal problems) I started noticing light periods with very light to moderate bleeding (it was very heavy with large clots before) within 4-6 months. I knew nothing about having endometriosis then but now I'm almost convinced that's what my trouble is.
